In his first two offseasons with the Redskins, Junior Galette encountered major issues with his health. Now in his third one with Washington, the pass rusher could be facing a legal problem.
Galette was arrested last Friday night in Mississippi, according to TV station WLOX. The reason the 29-year-old was arrested was because he allegedly got into a fight and then ran away.
WLOX reports that Galette was charged with disorderly conduct and failure to comply. The New Orleans Advocate, meanwhile, says the case is "tentatively scheduled" to go to court in mid-June.
The NFL veteran's attorney confirmed to The Advocate that the arrest did happen, but didn't comment further.
The team issued a statement: "We are aware of the incident. We are gathering information and will refrain from making any further comment."

There was once a time in America — before cell phones became everyone's fifth limb — where people would rely on these things called landlines, which had these things called cords, which plugged into these things called walls, and they'd call each other at home. This was back during VCRs and when humans would play outside. It was a strange period.
Dale Earnhardt Jr. apparently yearns for that long-lost era, however, because the NASCAR driver just bought himself a new house phone. But this ain't your run-of-the-mill, "I bought it at the electronics store in the nearest shopping center" house phone.
No, he found himself something much better. Check this beauty out:

That's right — Earnhardt Jr., who reps the Redskins as hard as any famous person, actually took the time to go on eBay and purchase that gorgeous relic. Dare we say he made a (waits for the crowd to get quiet) good call?

You'd think that comparing an offensive line to The Hogs — that famous unit who played a major role in the Redskins' best days in the 1980s and '90s — would come across as a compliment.
But one Dallas sportscaster didn't take it as such when a CSN reporter tried to do so.
On Wednesday's edition of Countdown to Training Camp, Newy Scruggs joined Chris Miller and Doc Walker to talk about the Cowboys. During that discussion, Miller asked Scruggs if the team's revered offensive line could end up as the second coming of The Hogs.
Scruggs responded by calling that thought disrespectful. Not disrespectful to The Hogs, however.
"We've already had a great wall in Dallas that won three Super Bowls, OK?" Scruggs said with a tone that was a mix of annoyed and incredulous. "Why can't they be that next version? Let's not compare them to something that's over in Washington."
To see Scruggs' full answer to Miller's question and his entire explanation for why he didn't like it, watch the video above. And for any Redskins fans who don't like the way he spoke about The Hogs, here's the man's Twitter. Now, tweet away.
